This team has had that old weird bent, where the hell did that fork come from in it for some time. The team battled really hard and their current record is if anything an example of overachieving, if you fully consider the roster and the goaltending situation. Hopefully, this off season they will get the much discussed offensive help they so desperately need.

As far as the playoff chance discussion, I will say I never thought I'd see a team down 3-0 in the series and down 3-0 in a game 4 to win that playoff series.

Do I think they have a chance? He'll no, but I didn't think the Flyers did either.

Slight, slight, chance. Just slight...

I'm not being blindly optimistic. I'm being realistic.

It's not realistic to expect 82 points to be enough points to make it in. Every team that has fewer than 90 points has to win more games before saying they're a playoff team. With that comes a possibility of any of those teams falling off the cliff just like Toronto.

The Rags, Flyers, Blue Jackets, Leafs, Wings, Caps have more winning to do before they can call themselves playoff teams. Any one of those teams can slump which would give an opening for any team outside looking in.


And if you think I'm being optimistic in any way, you've got me all wrong. I'm not saying we're gonna make the playoffs. I'm just saying there's a chance.

hehehe MB. You ARE being optimistic.

 

Any way, I don't believe they'll make it but I have hope. By Friday we'll know for sure. A 3.9% got us Larsson so why not a 20%+ chance?

 

No I'm not being optimistic.  I'm just not being pessimistic either.  Your bottom sentence is exactly what I have been saying in this entire thread.

Alright so im very very curious here... If you guys had to either

a) sit at a table with me for 2 hours and talk about Lou not trying hard enough to keep his players

Or

b) sit a a table with Mike Brown for 2 hours and talk about our chances of making the playoffs...

Theres no options to shoot yourself in the mouth with a shotgun... Its one or the other... What do you pick?

 

 

Wow...if there was ever a loaded question...

 

Seriously though, since you asked:

 

The only things I really fault you for are for bringing up and attacking Lou's MO more than you need to, either directly or indirectly, and not realizing that even the best GMs unfortunately don't see all of their moves work out year after year after year, regardless of their MOs...that's not saying everything Lou does can't ever be criticized, it's more saying that ANY GM who's been on the job as long as Lou has is eventually going to go through a less-fruitful stretch. I don't think you always express yourself exactly as you would like, which sometimes leads to communication breakdowns, but I attribute that more to a language barrier than anything else...English is clearly not your first language, and though your English is definitely pretty good, you post like a foreigner who hasn't grown up learning it, which means trying to say what you really mean in detail is probably difficult. But the one thing I'll say is, English issues aside, you have pretty clear stances, and at least when people are debating you, it tends to be about a particular topic where everyone has a pretty good idea exactly what your take is, even if people disagree with it.

 

But I'll take that everytime over:

 

No I'm not being optimistic.  I'm just not being pessimistic either.  Your bottom sentence is exactly what I have been saying in this entire thread.

 

Posts like this from MB always to lead to the same "debates" over and over again, but about the wrong things...there's never really a clear stand taken, and it leads to endless posts about semantics, shades of gray, playing both sides, etc.  DM84 pretty much nailed it a long time ago.  I don't get wrapped up in MB's whatever-you-want-to-call-it anymore (post-whoring, thread-clogging, etc), because he is clearly not going to take the advice he himself sought on how he can become a better and more likable poster, and will remain oblivious to the fact that his MO is detracting from what is otherwise a terrific board.

 

So short answer...I'll take the debate with you SD, at least it will be hockey-related and between two passionate fans who probably won't agree on at least half the topics, but will at least stay to the topics.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I'd pick you all day on that one. At least you have a stance on the issue, whether we agree or not. There's a give and take, and an expression of ideas. I'd take that anytime over this endless game of semantics.

Oh my GOD SatansDevils, that's someone I forgot about. Mike Brown is so much like SD except I'm pretty sure SD had a slight mental issue or something, or English wasn't his first language?

The last time I said the Devils had no shot was in 2000, when we were down 3-0 to the Flyers in the playoffs. they proved me wrong and won a Cup.

 

Every time I feel myself counting them out, I remember that time I gave up and I tell myself its not over yet. 

 

That's being a true fan.
